Two Tunnels Railway Races - July

Brickfields Park, Bath

Organiser's Description

A fast out and back course with lots of PB potential through Bath's Combe Down and Devonshire Tunnels - disused railway tunnels which until 2013 were sealed and inaccessible. This unique and truly special race takes in many of Bath's beautiful attractions, and also has the longest underground sections of any running race in the UK!

This is the third of four events in 2019, which offer a variety of events for all the family - the July event includes a half marathon, 10k, 5k, and a Colourburst run for the kids. Start and finish will be in Brickfields Park in the middle of the City - a green park with children's playground, a great spot to sit and enjoy a picnic after the race.

The Two Tunnels events are being staged at Brickfields Open Space (BA2 1LX) in the city of Bath.

If you live in Bath please consider walking or cycling to the site in the spirit of our event partner Sustrans. We will provide bike racking for cyclists.

If you are driving to Bath please park at Odd Down Park & Ride (BA2 8PA) and catch the Two Tunnels bus to the race site (£3 return for adults, £9 for a group of 5 adults and free for U16s). From here it is a 500m walk to the race site which will be signed with pink or orange signs.

Oldfield Park train station is approximately 800m from Brickfields.

All our runners receive a top of the range custom medal, as well as a buffet of fresh fruit and other tasty treats.

A green park complete with children's playground and table tennis table, a great spot to sit and enjoy a picnic after the race.

The 'Return Ticket' is a 2 lap out and back course which is flat and fast along the Two Tunnels Greenway path - perfect for setting a PB! It is a certified accurate course as measured by UK Athletics, reference number 236/2201b

There are two distances to chose from; 2km and 500m, each with multiple colour stations along the route! All runners will be given a white t-shirt to wear (small, medium or large) and we strongly recommend that you bring goggles or sun glasses to keep the colourburst out of your eyes. We also encourage mums and dads to consider a change of clothes and shoes for the car ride home :-)

These events are open for runners of all ages, particularly runners who would be too young to do our 5km race (min age 12). There is no minimum age for these colourburst runs and they are not timed events! Registration is £10 (2km), £8 for 500metres and includes a white t-shirt, custom medal and a selection of refreshments. Please note it's £2 extra to register on the day

The colourburst is infact 100% food grade corn starch with coloured dye, it is 100% safe, edible but not at all tasty so eating it is not encouraged, and 100% biodegradable.

5 km

This route is an officially measured accurate route. The whole route is on a fast tarmaced surface with gentle gradients of no more than 2% in only a few places on the route. This makes this a great fast course, certainly the fastest Relish Running course out there and there is a great chance of recording a PB on this route! The official course measurement reference number is 236/2201.

10 km

The whole route is on a fast tarmaced surface with gentle gradients of no more than 2% in only a few places on the route. This makes this a great fast course, certainly the fastest Relish Running course out there and there is a great chance of recording a PB on this route! The official course measurement reference number is 236/2201a

These events are set off in waves of approximately 100 runners set off every 10mins. This is because of the relatively narrow nature of the route. Each distance (5km, 10km, Half Marathon, Marathon) will have multiple waves to choose from when you register.

The waves are organised by predicted finish time, with one wave open to runners of all predicted finish times to make it easier for people who wish to travel together. Please confer with friends and family before you register to ensure you select the same wave if you wish to start together. The different start times are fully accounted for in the results so you pick any wave and get an accurate finish time.

REVIEWS

An extravagant route!

One of the best extravagant routes for a PB on a half marathon!
Fantastic tunnels to cool off in whilst undergoing the route and an overall flat course; to enable a PB!
